Secret Agent 23 Skidoo is a children’s performer unlike any you’ve heard before. Filled with great beats and fresh rhymes, his newest album brings to mind Will Smith in his musical prime. Skidoo infuses hip-hop into children’s music using fantastic guest vocalists to keep the songs light while addressing such kid familiar topics as nightmares, being a friend to oneself, swimming, and even putting a truly fresh spin on Jack and the Beanstalk (“Magic Beans”). Skidoo is artfully joined on two of the songs by his 10-year-old daughter, Saki, aka MC Fireworks, who can hold her own when breaking things down. The 11 songs are filled with an energy and positivity that will greatly appeal to children and their parents. Among the numbers are “Space Cadet,” “Rocketfuel,” “Nightmares Disappear,” “Snowforts and Sandcastles,” “Gotta Be You,” and more. This fresh, fantastic album is a must-have for all collections.–Veronica De Fazio, Plainfield Public Library District, IL
